The Michael C Hall workout and diet gets him in shape to play Dexter on Showtime. This American TV drama stars Michael C Hall, who plays as Dexter Morgan. He is a crime scene investigator/blood splatter analyst who twilights as a serial killer. To justify his need for blood, he kills people he knows are guilty.



To get in shape for his role as Dexter, Michael C Hall tapped celebrity trainer Gregory Joujon-Roche. Gregory Joujon-Roche, who charges $5,000 per week, comes with a support team. He makes sure his clients have access to a masseuse, nutritionist, martial arts instructor, yoga instructor, and core trainer. Much like Dexter has a full team working with him, the Michael C Hall Workout utilizes a full team.
